eliasbizannesElias Bizannes – The Culture of the Silicon Valley

Being in the start up world is a lifestyle…

Some of your best investors are those you have partied with in Las Vegas, some of your best deals are made over a pint of beer.

There is a hub of energy and a petri dish of tech experiments where revolutionary and disruptive ideas are encouraged. The left over liberal culture of hippy movement infiltrates the tech ecosystem of Silicon Valley. Mark Zuckerburg caused initial public outrage with his open tech culture of Facebook.

Elias Bizannes runs StartUpHouse – a co-working space in the heart of Silicon Valley which Presidential Republican Candidate Paul Rand visited two weeks ago in answer to Bizannes’ challenge over the internet to listen to lone-wolf innovators.

He also runs StartUpBus – a 3-day tech competition where buspreneurs compete to conceive the best tech start up idea. StartUpBus is active on 5 continents – North and South America, Europe, Africa and Australia.

Cockroaches can survive nuclear attacks … so can entrepreneurs. As trading is the ultimate entrepreneurial endeavour hear why the freedom is as valuable as the pay itself.
